Gerakan calls for BN-Pakatan talks on Sabah crisis

GEORGE TOWN: A Gerakan leader has called for a conference of political parties to discuss the Sulu invasion of Sabah.
Baljit Singh, who heads Penang Gerakan’s legal and human rights bureau, said politicians of all persuasions must demonstrate “true national solidarity” and together explore ways to end the crisis.
They must put aside petty politics, he added.
“It’s a matter of national security,” he said in an interview with FMT. “This is not the time for finger pointing and playing the blame game. It is time for all to be united as one nation to face the enemy from outside.”
But Baljit also called on the authorities to investigate all claims of sabotage and betrayal in connection with the invasion.
“Traitors must be charged and punished for treason,” he said. “We cannot tolerate treachery.”
In the three weeks since armed Sulu fighters landed in the Lahad Datu area, the mainstream media have played up accusations of treachery—or hints of it—at Pakatan Rakyat leader Anwar Ibrahim and websites supportive of the opposition bloc have published reports of connections between the court of Sulu and Umno leaders.
Anwar has filed a defamation suit against Utusan Malaysia and TV3.
